Colorado Rapids vs DC United Match Preview
Colorado Rapids have endured a difficult few years in Major League Soccer. Despite being previous MLS champions, the Denver-based side have not even managed to qualify for the play-offs in the last couple of seasons. Anthony Hudson, in his first campaign in the job last term, couldn’t prevent the team from finishing bottom of the pile in the combined table but that did allow them to bring in Brazilian starlet Andre Shinyashiki in the superdraft.
Shinyasiki may have scored 51 goals in 83 appearances for Denver Pioneers in his college career but he has managed just one goal so far in another poor start to the season for the Rapids. Hudson’s men have managed just two draws so far and lost their other four fixtures, going down 1-4 in their last home fixture to Houston Dynamo at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. You can back them to pick up that much-needed victory here at odds of 31/20 with Bet365.
DC United provided an incredible story in Major League Soccer last season. Despite struggling towards the bottom of the table for the majority of the season, the men from the capital started a rapid rise through the league table following the mid-season arrival of Manchester United and England legend Wayne Rooney, who led his side to some much improved form and an eventual play-off spot before they crashed out at the hands of Columbus Crew on penalties.
It’s been a strong start to the new campaign for DCU though, with games now being played at the purpose-built Audi Field and they make the trip to Denver this weekend on the back of a run of just one defeat from their first six matches of the campaign. After following up from a disappointing 0-4 defeat to LAFC with a draw at home to Montreal Impact – can they now bounce back with a win at odds of 13/8 with BetVictor.
We’re backing another share of the spoils in this game though. DCU have drawn two of their last five games and although the Rapids have not yet won a game this season, they have drawn on two occasions. The Black and Reds have struggled a little in their last two game, but they should still have enough quality to avoid defeat here which is why we’re backing the draw at odds of 8/5 with William Hill.
